Summer of Love 2011, It's a Wrap!

Fall is here on our doorsteps...although I can't wait to welcome the beautiful colors, pumpkins, apples, delicious spiced drinks, and all the other goodies of Fall, I have to be thankful for this past summer. Floral Occasions did some amazing weddings, and just ended the Summer season with a super romantic benefit gala at the Mission San Juan Capistrano. I was so honored to have had the opportunity to participate in a such an spectacular event! As a tribute to this Summer (all the amazing people, events, and new experiences), I just wanted to post a favorite photo from each event and give a shout out to some of the great venues and photographers we were lucky to work with. Read on and have fun. Congratulations to all of our wonderful couples.

We were honored to be featured on Wedding Chicks for being part of this fabulous wedding at the Villa!! This picture captures such a hidden, romantic moment for the newlywed couple.....and what a GREAT shot by Hugh Forte Photography

Another unforgettable highlight of this summer was the Mission San Juan Capistrano Benefit Gala.

A great wedding at Maison Des Oliviers, complete with romantic roses in soft pastels. Loving the fountain as a background! Picture by Goddard Studios.

This centerpiece, for another Maison Des Oliveres wedding, was overflowing with romance (literally...the amaranthus was perfect for it!) Photo by the amazingly talented Paul Von Rieter.

Awww....this stunning couple was married at the gorgeous Casa Romantica in early June, and she looked absolutely stunning! Photo by Troy Grover.

Julie was married at the Hotel Laguna. She kindly sent me this picture from her wedding day. Isn't her dress gorgeous?

This wedding at The Folly was adorable, and check out the hanging frame on the door! Seriously, this wedding has some of my favorite details. :) Thanks to the phenomenal Lane Dittoe for the picture!

I have so much respect and love for our military, so being able to participate and make 21 BOUQUETS for this mass military wedding was such an honor! There were 21 lovely couples getting married, but I'd thought I would share this photo of Ariel and Philippe.....don't they look so happy? Both photos are by Luminaire Images.
Mass Military Wedding 5/22/11

This was my first wedding at Marbella Country Club and WOW, it is a beautiful venue here in San Juan Capistrano. The skies were the perfect shade of blue and there were red roses galore!

Another beautiful wedding at The Villa that was featured on 100 Layer Cake! Tyler Branch Photo, you rock!!
Julie and Tyler 5/21/11

This wedding was a first for us at The Center Club in Costa Mesa, right next door to The Performing Arts Center. I hope that the talented Ashley Rose doesn't mind that I borrowed this beautiful picture from her blog.

We wish all of our newlywed couples the very best! This was a jam-packed summer for Floral Occasions, but we wouldn't have had it any other way.

We'd also like to mention the addition of two new members of the team......Randi and Susan!! They both started this summer and have been so much fun, welcome ladies, we are so happy to have you with us :)
Here's to spreading floral love allllll summer long!
